I'd like to call this the modern age of my collecting. In the 1990s, Star Wars Figures began to be released again, in a newer style. I hunted down the first series of these, and the plastic monkey sank his sharp plastic fangs in. I Grabbed occasional Transformers, as they caught my interest.
I married again, to an amazing person filled with patience and understanding of my quirks and broken places. And when Patience and Understanding don't work, she kicks my butt into line. We worked together, raised pets together, sometimes buried pets together. We moved from an old Victorian style house to what I call "the Burrow".
In 2007- Michael Bay (love him, hate him, etc.) Directed the Transformers live action movie and suddenly I had new Transformers toys again that I was interested in. My old love affair was reborn anew, and I was agog at the engineering advances in the last few years.
In 2011, the Crepundia Carta was formed in my household to limit my collection to:
- What I really want
- What I really care about
- What I can take care of
- What I have space for
- What I can afford from my Hobby Account
My Crown Jewels...
